*******************
LIP SYNC BUG from 1.9 has never been fixed after two years!!!!
*******************

It's really ridiculous that Bethesda still promotes this game after introducing a immersion-breaking bug between 1.8 and 1.9, and then NEVER fixing it.

********************
It's so sad. WARNING Do not buy if this matters to you. There is no way to use 1.8 on Steam.

News Comments > Valve on Improving Steam Customer Service
15. Re: Valve on Improving Steam Customer Service Mar 14, 2015, 17:13 Metasparks
 
I've had a horror story. Where I wanted to get the special edition of TESIV Oblivion. But because I bought it with TESIII and TESIV vanilla, I had to abandon both copies of the game in order to buy the sale of TESIV oblivion special edition.

Getting this to happen through customer service was an abysmal experience which took like five days. They allowed me to forfeit TESIII and rebuy it at $5 to get TESIV special edition for another $5, because they weren't able to upgrade my TESIV vanilla to the special edition (even though it was only $1.50 more).

For having spent thousands of dollars on Steam for over 10 years, I thought that was really petty of them. Meanwhile, in the Origin camp, the Origin CSRs took my DVD keys over IM chat to add games to my Origin profile. When some of the keys didn't work, they gave me the games anyways (and the upgraded editions as well). I thought that was stellar.

I agree. This is very misleading and a poor choice of words.

Blue can you clarify the headline?

Remember when company's let us Beta test their games for free? Or even paid us to beta test them? I was watching some streams of this game and it looked like it would fill my crafting needs for a bit... then I started looking into it and it seems like they want to just destroy it.

We're showing our age. It's a new generation.

Their website is kind of bare. Does their service supercede the native matching of the games they support?

Great question, StingingVelvet. They probably look at how often users access the multiplayer feature and deduct from those stats. But I'm just guessing.

News Comments > PC Ghost Recon Future Soldier in June; Specs; DRM Details
24. Re: NPD 2011 Sales Estimates Apr 3, 2012, 16:34 Metasparks
 
This all sounds pretty damn good to me. The DRM isn't draconian. They are providing multi-monitor support. They have a matchmaking and grouping system for their game. The minimum/recommended requirements of the game are way more than acceptable. And they are doing a multi-platform release, on top of all that, including the PC as one of them, and only holding off on the PC for less-than-a-month.

I don't know why so many of you have sandy vaginas over a press release like this. Maybe Ubisoft is trying to turn a new leaf with this game. They've obviously relaxed their DRM. If you got bit before by Ubisoft, hang back and see if they changed for the better, before making immediate judgments. People work hard on these games, you know? Some of them can actually turn out to be good.

I'd play it in NA as F2P. Always wanted to check out what the Crytek engine could do in an MMO environment.

Kind of stupid to announce this four months ahead of time. Way to cannibalize your current Hard Reset sales, dummies!
